Shimga Festival of Kokan

Holi, a true festival of colors is celebrated in many ways and forms in different parts of India. I am taking you to my village, Kosumbh, Ratnagiri. Maharashtra where the Gods arrive at your house. The villagers place the God's and Goddess' in a Palkhi ( a chariot which is carried on shoulders) and bring it your house. The lord and the lady of the house welcome the palkhi and the villagers in their house so that they together can pray for the well being of the family.
